Lipton Green Tea Mocktails- Taste With A Twist

Green tea. Every other person today is talking about green tea & its health benefits!And even after being aware of all these benefits, I used to always opt for my cold coffee. Why? Well, flavour has always been very important to me and I somehow used to think that Green Tea is plain & boring until… Until I was reintroduced to Lipton Green Tea Mocktails during the Lakme Fashion Week.

What? Green Tea & Mocktails? Yes, as strange as it may sound, it tastes absolutely delicious. Better than my cold coffee and maybe a zillion times healthier too. Now isn’t that amazing? So basically, Lipton did something quirky and fun and added an amazing twist to the plain old green tea. They created FIVE amazing Green Tea mocktails and introduced these refreshing drinks. And you guys, I am not even kidding and I am OBSESSED with these drinks. I never in my life imagined that green tea could also be used in such a creative way. Since I love these Lipton green tea drinks sooooo much, I sneaked in the recipes and thought of sharing with you’ll.
